|My family of Semi-Precious, don't you think they are like TVB colors?|
Ever since my last post on my MAC Semi-Precious Mineralize Eyeshadow haul earlier, I said I had my eyes on the blue shadow "Hint of Sapphire" (all due to Miss Elain-Nio!! haha!)
I can't take this urge and so I went back to MAC (20 minutes prior to store's closing hour) to get the shadow before it's completely sold out! (I don't want anymore regrets, it's such a painful feeling!!!)
(Well, my hubby said I am only allowed 1 item per visit to MAC, but I m glad I got it... see below to see why!)
I am happy I got this Hint of Sapphire, as it has excellent veining and a good range of colors in a single palette. It looks like a little blue planet in itself... Mercury, perhaps?
I know there are no two identical semi-precious mineralize e/s based on the way they are baked. Some people would get e/s that have less veining...
I heard rants about this, and even see a thread where there is a girl that bought 4 e/s of the same color and deciding which one to keep:
I am lucky, mine has a range of deep blue, lighter lilac blue, greenish blue, and copper!
Swatches on my arm:

You can distinctly see 3 shades of blue and a copperish tone--I get so much out of this single e/s. I am totally in love with this Hint of Sapphire I own, I didn't regret just going out almost closing time to get this e/s!
EOTD with Hint of Sapphire:
It's quite pigmented, isn't it? I am very happy with the lovely range of blues I get from the Hint of Sapphire. I added a little bit of Quartz Fusion on my outer lower lash line for a pop of color <3
